An apple juice producer buys all his apples from a conglomerate of apple growers in one northwestern state. The amount of juice obtained from each of these apples is approximately normally distributed with a mean of 2.25 ounces and a standard deviation of .15 ounce. What is the probability that a randomly selected apple will contain more than 2.50 ounces?
